I have a similar problem that cbaker999 has. Sony support suggested that I reset the camera by taking out the battery, turning the camera on for 1 minute, turning it off, then reinserting ther battery - the camera workied for 1 day, then nothing worked again - no function buttons, playback, AF, or shutter. It would cost a flat fee of $225 to send it in for repair, if it's even repairable, with a 90 day warranty on the repair. My question: would it be worth repairing or is this a common problem wwith the a100? Should I be looking at getting a totally new camera - Canon or Nikkon?

Check the memory stick if its full and delete some photos......then try and take a shot.
the four red zeroes are counters for the number of shots u have taken.....it simply indicates you have a full memory stick.
Mine played the same trick on me too.
Right reset your phone. Connect to a computer, click file transfer. take the phone out, this automatically resets it. After youre phone should work with camera, remember take one picture, if you dont then it wont work again. Same problem with me, and i fixed it.
This sounds odd, I know, but I found a solution that worked for me. I had exactly the same problem: picture taking was wonky, menu button, playback button wouldn't work. It would do this immediately upon starting up, every time.
What worked was when I adjusted the "exposure" by holding the +/- button and turning the little dial near the shutter button. It makes absolutely no sense, but somehow it suddenly started working perfectly again. And it hasn't glitched up again yet.
Hope it works for you, too.
I found an online manual for your camera. Page 84 talks about the USB Mode Normal with the 4 dots underneath. It also show a troubleshooting area for this and it is on page 96. Hopefully this will get your camera working right again. Here is the link to the pdf manual. http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSCW1.pdf
